Ti bor Scarcity.
To meet the labor shortage on the
farms of Nebraska and to insure pro
per planting and harvesting of crops
next year, Gurdon W. Wattles, fed
eral food administrator for Nebraska,
suggests the importation of foreign
labor. Mr. Wattles would have this
labor brought in for the period of the
war, when it could be returned to the
foreign countries, if deemed advis
Mr. Wattles points out the advis
ability of bringing in Chinese and
Japanese by saying the United States
must meet the problems of feeding
"If we are to be looked upon as the
granary ot the ,world, and asked to
supply tne aines wmi tooastuns, it is
evident we must be properly equipped
to .fulfill this all important mission,"
said Mr. Wattles.
"We are seriously handicapped in
our efforts through so many men hav
ing been taken from the field of agri
cultural pursuits. 'c must fill the
places of these men and we must fill
them with men who are able to fur
nish 'the necessary labor.
"Experience has shown that we
cannot depend upon men in other
walks of life for many reasons. Many

"With millions of Chinese, Ja
panese, and other foreign laborers
available, under certain conditions, I
am of the opinion that some method
should be devised whereby to secure
their services during the war or as
i long as necessary. They can be re
journed -afterwards, if advisable, but
. the immediate question is to get them
and keep production normal and also
to meet increased production now de
manded. "One hundred thousand or more
can be used advantageously in agri
cultural pursuits, and I am decidedly

Colorado is facing the same prob
lems, according to T. B. Stearns, food
administrator of the state. He is urg
ing congressional action permitting
the importation of Mexicans, Chinese,
Japanese, and others to supply the
common labor market.
Mr. Wattles is inclined to the belief
that the Chinese and Japanese will
better fit into the general scheme of
agricultural activity than the Mexi
cans, while the Colorado official lays
emphasis on the availability of the
men from the south.
Soldiers From Both Forts
Make Use of the Khaki Klub
The Khaki Klub, which opened its
doors to the soldiers of Forts Omaha
and Crook a 'week ago, has shown
"old southern hospitality" to 1,902 sol
dier boys so far.
Charles H. English was elected gen
eral superintendent of the club house
by the members of the Rotary club
of this city, who launched the good
friendship movement for the soldiers.
He reports that 751 soldiers have
registered thejr names on the rosters.
Twenty-five per cent of the soldiers
who are stationed at Forts Omaha
and Crook have already made avail
able use of the accommodations af
forded them. '
President W. II. Clarke of the
Rotary club says that the newly or
ganized Khaki Kluk has fostered a
brotherly attitude and feeling of hos
pitality among the soldier visitors.

"There is a good story down at the

I thought the city edkor was ex

I had heard fellows say how good it
makes one feel to wear a khaki uni
form these days from personal ex
penence I know they attord every
freedom of movement, and people
have lots of respect for them. When
a fellow decides to join the army, he is
nursing a sort or devilmay-carc spirit
anyway, and a supreme confidence
that everything will come out all right
in the wash.
Get Cold Chills.
Another thing, conditions are un
doubtedly upset for young men these
days, and it sort of relieves your
mind to "get your feet wet" and let
Uncle Sam do your worrying for you.
Anyway, that's how I felt and my or
ders were to get all the thrills.
I wasn t Koinir to enlist without
getting in on the ground floor. I walk
ed around to the Fifteenth street en
trance of the federal building, and
spied Corporal Lane and he spied me

combat" so he would select me as
possible timber, but he looked the
other way and I passed him and the
army but not forever.
All the way around the block I
went and sure enough, there he was
agin. He saw me and I saw him.
(First feeling chills.)
Inside the federal building corridor,
I quickly noted that lonesomeness
would not be one of the attacking
feelings. About 100 fellows were sit
ting or standing waiting their turn
at the little desk where the enlisted
men take your bertillon, and put you
Coon and Chickens.
Looking in, I turned around and
sought an empty chair. Next to me
sat R. B. Ward, a farmer boy, who
had just been in, and when I asked
him what they wanted to know, he
said : r
"Oh, your age, your name, your oc
cupation, what branch you want to
get into and when you want to leave."
Well, I replied, the cavalry or quar
termaster's department seem to give
you the longest lease on life, so I
guess that's were I will head in. No
chance. Ward informed me that these
two branches were already full and
no more recruits for them would be
The red-faced young man on the
other side of me had been leaning
over listening to our conversation, so
I asked him how it happened he was
enlisting the day after Thanksgiving.
I started something, for he was very

'I went to a Thanksgiving dance
at Bennington Thursday night and
some-of those drafted boys were there
in their uniforms and they copped the
whole parade. Even my girl sort of
neglected me for them, so thinks I,
my corn is about picked and there's
no one "depending a whole lot on me,

my girl about it, she promised some
thing that I had been arguing with
her about for six months guess you
know what I mean so now I'm go
ing to end this business as quick -as
My seat was getting warm, so I
moved to the seat near two other
fanner boys. Incidentally a few
statistics I compiled showed about 20
per cent of those waiting were mar
ried, and about SO per cent farmers.
"Are you going to enlist?" I in
quired of out of them.
"That depends," declared a pink
cheeked son of the soil. "What I
want to do is to be examined now
and then come in for active training
about December 14."'
"What luck did you have?" I per
sisted. "Well, the sergeant wanted to
know why I was waiting until the
last minute, so 1 tqld him my tale.
You see I have bten farming tor my
self and have a lot of tattle and
grain, and I don't wnt to sell out if
I can't pass the physical examination.
Looked at-His Feet.
He just took a look at my teeth
and feet, and said 'you'll do,' so I guess
I'll go home and hold one grand auc
tion. I was just sitting here think
ing how much I might raise on the
cutfit. The sergeant said everybody
that came in December 12 would be
examined and shipped out the same
day, and after that they expected to
shut up shop."
Sergeant Hanson s;t peacefully in
his office and looked full of vital in
formation, so I braced him with:
"How does it come the government is
accepting marred men now?"
"We put them on the staff," he
"Oh, is that so? A married man
can get on the commanding officer's

when in training and whether you are

"ninety-nine" a few times, to test his

while the doctor throws a weird whis

gives you the 20-20 eye test.
"We don't enlist you here, we just
sign you up as a prospective soldier
and send you to Fort Logan, where
they take you for the emergency," de
clared the doctor. "But if we pass
you there is no doubt but what vou

That's about all that enters into the
life' of any American desirous of en

to do is signify his willingness they

Government Is Preparing
To Chase Grasshoppers
The general drouth of the past year
has been favorable to an outbreak
of grasshopper pests. next spring un
less unfavorable conditions to the
hatching are leveloped.
Anticipating such a condition, the
government, through a proclamation
by President Wilson, has placed the
arsenic industry under the control
of the federal food administration.
The purpose of this act was to con
serve the crops from possible depreda
tions og "biting insects." Arsenic
is the base of many insecticides,
which are unusually effective in meet
ing these outbreaks.
"The placing of the industry will
also tend to stabilize the price,' says
Gurdon W. Wattles, federal food ad
ministrator for Nebraska. "With the
cessation of importations of arsenic,
much of which came from Germany,
the price has fluctuated markedly."
Judge Redick Clears
Docket of Dead Cases
Judge Redick dismissed 93 cases on
call Saturday in the district court.
These cases had been on the district
court dockets for more than two years
and as no action had been taken with
in that period toward bringing them
to hearing before the court, they were
stricken from the docket under the
recent rule passed by the judges.
There are 800 of these dead cases
still encumbering the records and
the court will dispose of them as
quickly as possible. A call will be
held every Saturday and on failure of
the attorneys for the parties to ap
pear the cases will be dismissed until
the dockets are up to date.
